Just Another Meatless Monday

Hey What's For Dinner


We are a family of roasted veggie lovers. It can't be denied we love them best roasted, no matter what kind, no matter what season we'd prefer them roasted. Ask us to pick our favorite and we reminisce on the last roasted veggie we consumed to figure it out. I don't think I've roasted a vegetable that we do not like, correct me if I'm wrong. That happened once, I think, ha!

I'm sure I've explained my boys love of beets before. The, um, biological properties never fail to amaze and delight small people around our home. In fact it seems to up the love of beets and I can never make enough to satisfy. I've taken to roasting a couple pounds at a time to have them on hand for snacking or quick weeknight dinners. Or this simple weekend lunch salad. I love pulling out pre-cooked ingredients and whipping up a quick meal.

Roasted Beet Salad

4 large roasted beet
4-6 hard boiled eggs
1 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp good vinegar, apple cider works well here
salt
pepper
1/2 teaspoon mustard(optional)

peel the roasted beets
slice and plate them-1 beet per plate
peel the eggs, chop coarsely and set aside
mix the remaining ingredients, add salt and pepper to taste
pour over the beets
divide the eggs evenly over the beets
serve immediately


Gee now I want roasted beets! Better get some roasted up so we can have salad again.











Peace and love--

  3. Thanks for hosting! I love beets too and like the look of your beet and hard boiled eggs :) I've shared a recipe for a "tropical" butternut squash salad with coconut oil dressing.

  5. My dearly beloved has a horror of beets stretching back to his childhood. I think it's the color of them, or maybe the fact that his mother boiled them and they stained his mashed potatoes. Funny the way things stick with people.

  6. Hi,
    This is my first time posting! I hope I did everything right. We recently made these delicious lacto-fermented sour pickles that are to die for.
